OK, I've implemented some additional test targets removal code. Because I
did not want to impact current testing the additional removal is not
enabled. To use add a "--remove-test-targets" option to the b2 invocation.
This will remove all executable and objects for all test targets (it
doesn't remove them for dependent library targets though). I'd appreciate
some feedback as to how it works and if there are any problems since it's
not obvious code.
